Milk Chocolate Caramel Nut Clusters

I am always looking for something sweet and yummy to try! I absolutely love nuts, caramel and chocolate, so when I found this recipe for these super simple Nut Clusters I couldn’t resist! They look heavenly and only a small indulgence 😉

Here’s the recipe from Cooking And Beer

Chocolate & Caramel Nut Clusters

Ingredients

  • 1 cup raw and unsalted almonds
  • 1 cup raw and unsalted cashews
  • 1 cup caramel treat
  • 12 ounces milk chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoons coarse sea salt

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl, toss the almonds and cashews together.
  2. On a large baking sheet (lined with parchment paper) make small mounds of the almond and cashews in small clumps. Form 12 clumps with the nuts. Set aside.
  3. In a medium, microwave-safe bowl, add the caramel. Microwave for 2 minutes, and then give it a good stir. Microwave for an additional 1 minute, again giving it a good stir afterwards until melted completely. Using a small spoon, dollop about a tablespoon of the caramel on top of each clump of nuts, attempting to cover at least a small part of every nut. The caramel will act like a glue to hold the nuts together. Place the baking sheet in the freezer for 5 minutes while you melt the chocolate.
  4. In a medium, microwave-safe bowl, add the milk chocolate chips. Microwave in 30 second increments, stirring after each, until the chocolate is completely melted.
  5. Remove the baking sheet from the freezer, and dollop tablespoon-sized amounts of the chocolate onto each cluster, smoothing out where necessary with the back of the spoon. Immediately following each dollop of chocolate, sprinkle on the coarse sea salt.
  6. Place the baking sheet back in the freezer for 30 minutes or until the chocolate has set.
